hi scott

i've been thinking about this whilst i've been looking at MethodUtils. 
really the method names are so poorly chosen and the contracts in the java 
docs so badly designed that there probably won't be a method-for-method 
correspondence with the new version in lang.

you know that i don't like this patch but if you feel strongly that it 
should be applied and are willing to maintain the code in the 
beanutils.MethodUtils version (until it's deprecated), then i won't stand 
in your way.

so... the ball's in your court on this one.
